I have a brother who just broke off an engagement and he is crushed.
He typically has gone for women who have had issues with the men in their lives (fathers, brothers).
She called him after he left, broke the engagement off, trashed their apartment and moved out, texted my mom at am to let her know how her son had wronged her, and harassed all his friends who were on the trip with him.
When he got back and told her he needed time to think things over she called him crying and asking “don’t you still want to be with me? She is and has been wildly manipulative and erratic in her behavior- she brings new meaning to the “woman scorned” adage.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in communication arts from Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
According to AT Health, children who are abandoned by their parents often experience trust issues in adulthood, making it difficult to form close interpersonal relationships.
But the best part about being damaged is that there's only one way to go now, and I will bust my ass every day to be a strong, independent woman with her own self-worth.
It just might take me a little longer than I'd like.
So, you might ask, what does the rescuer do and feel in her relationships?
The rescuer focuses on and worries about her partner more than he does about himself.
Repeatedly, she finds herself with partners who, at first, seem sweet and have tremendous potential, but before long reveal themselves to be emotionally volatile or unstable, aggressive and controlling, unhappy, or unable to cope with some aspect of their lives.
